Christian holiday moved to conflict with the time of year when everyone everywhere (and everywhen) celebrates the winter solstice (point of Earth's orbit where, in the northern temperate zones, the sun's zenith slows its southern decent and begins moving north again = another year to live).
2. Hodgepodge of ancient and not-so-ancient rituals, including sacrificing a tree to Mother Nature, celebrating the miracle that got Nicholas his sainthood (reassembling murdered and hacked up child parts in a barrel back into children), and, oh, the birth of Jesus, a jew, and the guy that made 12 of his buddies drink his blood and eat his flesh, before he got executed and came back from the dead. (Can you say "zombie"?)
3. Day that Santa brings new socks and undies. If your bad, you get coal (to keep from freezing) and an orange (for vitamin C to prevent scurvy).
Fucking Christmas. I wanna get drunk.
1. n. The holiday celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. Falling conveniently on the 25th of December, supposedly declared by the Catholic Church to eclipse a Pagan holiday (winter solstice) on the same day.
2. n. A heart touching season where gift giving is promoted, and Santa Claus is every youth's hero. Other Christmas icons include: reindeer, snowmen, elves, presents, pine trees, ornaments, tinsel, holy, yule logs, sleighs, mistletoe, carols, noel, angels, golden rings, calling birds, french hens, turtledoves, birds in fruit-bearing trees...........But no, now it's a pile of shit because everyone is making sales and beating the shit outta people for a Lego set for their bitchy children who keep looking at their presents. Why the hell do we give it too children? They already got their basic needs, It means GIVE not to family give it to the less fortunate you selfish assholes.
Year 1: Here have some free food to celebrate Jesus's birth HURRAH FOR CHRISTMAS!! :D
Year: 2009: get the FUCK OUT OF THE WAY BEEEEYOTCH!!!
Solstice (winter in the north, summer in the south) reinvented by Christian masterminds to allow Sin and Guilt to replace existing, more wholesome and life-loving traditions.
It's Christmas! What the hell is Solstice? I thought the fucking world revolved around ME!
an International Christian day for Hypocriticism, and a day free from work ..
Let's just, for ONCE a year, pretend we all love and care for eachother ..
New years celebration dating back to the stone age in europe. When the Catholics decided to convert dark age europe to christianity, they decided to claim that jesus was born on the same day they celebrate new years day and tell them to assume that new years day was a week later.
25th of December
The time of the year where families gather around their trees on December 25th, sheltered from the snow falling outside, drinking hot cocoa and opening presents. This magical time of the year is in celebration of the birth of Christ, who sacrificed himself for our sins.
It's Christmas time
A holiday thats was initially to celebrate jesus' birth, even though historians beleive he was auctuaply born in June. Over the years atheist syarted celebrating it even though they don't celebrate tge most important part, jesus. Christmas now is just a ton of random people frm various religions celebrating a ( suppose to be ) christian holiday by buying insanely expensive presents for each other while the people that truely should celebrate get socks and thats it. Now adays Christmas is about as religious as earth day.
Macy's: Buy our $10000000 home ware
